The Wonderful World of Wildflowers

Yesterday was a really odd day. Raining when we woke up, then cloudy, and then the sun poked its head out from behind the clouds. My oldest daughter and I decided to take a walk. It seems that in the last week all the wildflowers just took hold of our fields. We headed down the back road, dogs leading the way. We got to the top of the hill with only a few flowers in hand and the thunder started to roll. We decided to take the turn to the tree house just in case we needed to seek shelter, which we did. Fortunately not for very long, because it is not fun to be in the tree house with 2 German Shepards in a thunder storm. The brief showers passed and we continued picking as we went along. We returned with this lovely bouquet. We found Queen Anne's Lace, Butterfly Milkweed, daisies, purple clover, and a bunch of others that I don't know the names.
